I used kraft cardstock as my background as this reminds me of old brown envelopes and went with the brown colour prominent in my photos without making it too dark and dreary. The blue paper was from Echo Park's "For the Record" collection as was the gramophone sticker. Other stickers came from Bo Bunny's "Timepiece" sticker sheet. I added a MME journalling card, again in a lighter kraft colour and Chatterbox Lush velvet stickers in red for a pop of colour on my page and to bring out the muted red in the Bo Bunny stickers. For someone who rarely scraps older photos I am quite pleased with the finished page.
So how about extending this challenge to our blog readers? Share with us your retro layout using retro products or scrapping an older photo and who knows, there may be a small prize in store.
